ZIF-8: A comparison of synthesis methods - ScienceDirect
The combination of the enzymatic and electrochemical methods with traditional synthetic techniques proved to be a powerful tool that, when applied to synthetic ventures, did result in more efficient and environmentally benign procedures.
ZIF-8 was prepared by 7 different synthesis methods
Different methods have been developed to obtain silver NPs of various shapes and sizes, including laser ablation, gamma irradiation, electron irradiation, chemical reduction, photochemical methods, microwave processing, and thermal decomposition of silver oxalate in water and in ethylene glycol, and biological synthetic methods. Biosynthetic methods of NPs provide a new possibility of conveniently synthesizing NPs using natural reducing and stabilizing agents. As possible environmentally and economically friendly alternatives to chemical and physical approaches, biosynthesis of metal and semiconductor NPs using organisms has been suggested. Monodispersity and particle size and shape are very important parameters in the evaluation of NPs synthesis. Therefore, the efficient control on the morphology and monodispersity of NPs must be explored. The reaction conditions should be optimized. By using screened organisms with high production capability and controlling the reaction conditions, well- characterized NPs can be obtained by synthesis rates faster or compatible to those of chemical and physical approaches. This eco-friendly method can potentially be used in various areas, including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, foods, and medical applications.
